Once the Christmas season has passed, it’s time for packing decorations for the next year. In order to ensure your decor is protected through the next 11 months, consider how you are storing your items. Holiday decorations that are stored securely using a few simple steps will last longer and be easier to find for future Christmases.
Rather than tossing everything into a cardboard box, organize your decorations using special containers. Look for plastic, lidded containers that feature dividers and individual units for placing smaller, fragile items, such as glass ornaments or ceramic gingerbread houses. For larger items, such as wreaths, trees and bundles of lights, use specialty containers that are made for these items. Such containers typically feature weather resistant, humidity proof, bug repelling coatings that will extend the life of large sized holiday decor. Store everything in a single area or space that is safe from drafts, rain, and extreme temperatures, such as in a closet or storage unit.
